    Involvement with ground breaking technologies and enterprise products.
    Working with experts and professionals most importantly.
    Good benefits in comparison to the rest of the Greek market.

    Need to work with so many different managers without specific assignmemnts across all Unify in order to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your people and keep communication flowing even if is good or bad.

    I worked at Unify full-time

    Pros

    The people are fantastic

    Cons

    Upper management driven only by numbers.
    Acquisition by ATOS provided no direction and only wanted the large customers.
    Too slow to adjust to market drivers. No true cloud solution

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees as if they matter

    Pros

    The line level personnel are great to work with.

    Cons

    Executive management does not have a clear defined vision nor can they provide a roadmap to reach goals outlined. They are out of touch with the needs of the line level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the line staff they know what is happening in the real world.

    I worked at Unify (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, engaging projects, newer office space, international business with an opportunity to travel and work with people from different parts of the world

    Cons

    Company has been in transition for over 10 years. Layoffs have been a consistent theme and so morale if negatively impacted. If you need a job, it's not a bad place to be, but I wouldn't leave current role to join.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on winning new business. New products offer promise but sales are lagging which will only lead to more cutbacks. More partnerships would help especially in the US

    I worked at Unify full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is always in crisis mode. The value in crisis situations is you learn to think fast and you get to develop and use skills you probably never knew you had. Additionally, you do not have to wait for seniority or years in your career to work on high visibility and critical projects and assignments. If you are good, you will be put to use, excessively.

    Cons

    Owned by a private equity firm means the company is always being primed to sell. There is always a "restructure" to cut costs and look good on the books. It's quickest way to cut costs is to cut human capital. Perpetual lay offs. Hard to get any traction on any programs or projects. Revolving door management. Employees are incidental in this climate. Cash rules.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage a P&L and how to motivate and build people up.
    Fiscal Accountability!!!

    Pros

    Some good benefits and the comp pack was decent if the targets were inline. Company wanted to relaunch in order to prepare for a IPO....

    Cons

    Stale tech and a company dominated by a mature staff resistant to change. Revolving door from a management standpoint and private equity co was not helping provide direction. No real cloud play

    Pros

    No pros anymore at this company

    Cons

    Company has changed ownership again to Atos which only wanted the customer base accounts, not really in it to further develop products.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for an advice.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits and compensation package. Good co-worker and management structure

    Cons

    Company seemed to large at times with conflicting objectives. Too much work for too few employees but yet they keep reducing the workforce. Too much turnover in the executive levels.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more in touch with the lower levels of the organization. Reward outstanding contributions.
